In an open letter to Mr. Ashok Singhal, a Hindu woman writes where we will all head if India becomes a Hindu nation by 2020, as he declares.
Dear Mr Ashok Singhal,
As far as I am concerned, I will formally convert to a religion called Humanity and leave the earth for a better planet since there will be no place for women like me in this Hindu World. Maybe, Pluto is the answer I am looking for.
Before ending this letter, I wish to remind you something. I assume you must be really proud of Hinduism and it might be the essence of your life. You must be ready to go to any lengths to make it flourish and give human beings the benefit of being Hindu. But, have you forgotten that the basic elixir of Hinduism is acceptance of differences and co-existing without harming each other?
Saffron might be the color you’re chasing, but India will always be incomplete without White and Green. The constitution makes us all equal in the eyes of Bharat, and you can’t change that in five years. Or a lifetime.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 might have had a box office collection of 260 crores INR and entertained Indian audiences, but it's full of problematic stereotypes.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starts with a scene in which the protagonist, Ruhaan (played by Kartik Aaryan) finds an abandoned pink suitcase in a moving cable car and thinks there was a bomb inside it.
Just then, he sees an unknown person (Kiara Advani) wave and gesture at him to convey that the suitcase was theirs. Ruhaan, with the widest possible smile, says, “Bomb mai bag nahi hai, bomb ka bag hai,” (There isn’t a bomb in the bag, the bag belongs to a bomb).
Who even writes such dialogues in 2022?
Anupama, an idealist at heart, believes that passing on the mic to amplify suppressed voices is the best way to show solidarity with the marginalised.

An intelligent, extroverted writer with a ton of empathy, she is also one who thinks aloud in her writing. Anupama says that she is largely a self driven person, and her passion to write keeps her motivated.
Among her many achievements Anupama is also a multiple award winning blogger, author, serial entrepreneur, a digital content creator, creative writing mentor, choreographer and mother to a rambunctious 7-year-old who is her life’s inspiration and keeps her on her toes.
